This is a detailed critical study of the poetry, identifying its concerns, from the point of view of a convinced admirer. Lucy Beckett presents Stevens as a contemplative poet, engaged on a long enquiry into the nature of the relationship between the creative imagination and the world it illuminates and recreates. Stevens' achievement is seen as one of the great monuments in English of the endeavor to find and sustain a connection between poetry and belief."@en ;
